Now let's see what are the main factors that promote the development of soybean oil production industry in Argentina, and why setting up a soybean oil plant is a promissing project.

  • Adequate Supply of Soybean: lts rich raw materials enhance the higher competitive advantage among the Argentine in soybean oil production.
  • Suitable Climate Conditions and Soils: The global competitive advantage is also as a result of factors such as suitable climate conditions and soils, reduced distance between the farms and the processing industries, high professionalism and the export ports associated to the processing plants.
  • Low Transport Cost: There is also a low cost of transport and reduced logistics. In a year, over 0.165 million boxcars and more than 1.1 million Lorries unload soybeans in the crushing industries. According to a statement by ForoPais, there is a high level of technology in Argentina that accounts for its excellent production regardless of the few industries. lts average capacity is larger than the other highest producers globally with 21% more than European producers, 53% more top than Brazil and 33% higher than the American industries. However, it's the third producer of biodiesel and accounts for 60% in fuel exportation.

However, there are logistical difficulties that have remained for a while. Experts report concerning the delays shows that it's all about transport, limited storage for the grains, size of production and logistics in the port. lt’s a call for attention to bring changes in the mobilization structure, port logistics and storage facilities to increase soybean oil supply.

World Market Share of Soybean oil Production

Soybean Oil Production by Country Production (1000 MT)
Top 1. China 16,576
Top 2. United States 10,898
Top 3. Argentina 8,390
Top 4. Brazil 8,195
Top 5. EU-27 3,154

Argentina and Brazil are the two countries with the rapid increase in the soybean production regarding the land under cultivation. They are consequently the leading producers of the soybean oil and other products associated with it. USDA reports show that a trade agreement in a bloc of countries: Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, and Paraguay produces approximately 11.3% planted acres, 13.4% of production and about 33.2% of the world export of oilseed and grains. In a decade, the region will be leading producer of oilseeds and grains taking 41% of the world's market share.
